Thanksgiving Dinner Menu 2009

Sunday, November 22, 2009
This is kinda last minute but I just wanted to let you guys know...

The Menu:

Roast Turkey
Mashed Potatoes

Turkey Gravy

Grandma's Bread Stuffing

Cheesy Cauliflower


Cranberry Sauce

Butternut Squash Soup

Homemade Crescent Rolls

Browned Butter Pecan Pie

Chocolate Cream Pie
Sparkling White Grape Juice


Hopefully we're able to get the sparkling white grape juice for me, the under-age one. It's so tough to get and even though I warned my mom to shop for it early, still nothing. Also, we're hoping for cinnamon rolls in the morning. Using MY ALL TIME FAVORITE RECIPE! So much better than the Bread Baker's Apprentice one's I made. But, school work first. And trust me, a 10 page outline with 30 note cards and bib cards might be important to my grade. Okay, this was quick, but there you go!

    Update: We now have the sparkling white grape juice. Two bottles, to be precise, and I even had coupon for the Welch's brand. Thanksgiving has been saved!

    I noticed you were going to make Cookie Madness browned butter pecan pie. I made two of them at different times last week-The first one was kind of runny. I kept my second pie in the oven for an additional 10 or 15 minutes. Anna updated the recipe today to include a longer cook time because she told me (also today) hers came out runny also. My opinion is it is the best pecan pie I've ever tasted. What did you think of it?

    Well, he he, I haven't made it yet. I was actually planning on making it tomorrow for sure. I got really ambitious with homemade cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls, and we also had pumpkin pie instead of the chocolate one, that it just didn't seem like the pecan pie would be enjoyed until the others were finished off. But thank you for the information! Hopefully that will help me when I do make it. And I'll post it up and tell you how it went=)I'm very excited for it because it'll will be my first!

    I'll look forward to seeing your comments. Most pecan pies call for just about as much sweeteners, but not nearly as much salt. My opinion is the salt and the browned butter flavor is what sets it apart and gives the pie almost a caramel flavor. Also, I can't believe you are only 16! I could barely boil water at 16!
